We spent New Year's Eve at the Madras Club. We were supposed to leave and go to other parties, but never got around to it because the Club turned out to be such fun. I'm not sure why, but I always thought there were too many old fogies at the Club and that it wasn't fun. But they really know how to throw a party. The music was very good, there was great food and lots of alcohol and loads of people.
I think the average age of the Club-goers has vastly reduced. Maybe because a lot of people have now moved back to Chennai from other countries, and are now in the same process of gaining membership into the Club. It could also be the fantastic new pool that they have installed after the renovation.
Whatever the reason, I'm enjoying being part of the Madras Club and I'm glad that my daughter is enjoying using their playground and pool, just like I did when I was a kid.
